12 Awesome Canadian TV Show Theme Songs
Wow, what a lot of memories! Great to see the Kids in their prime. I always got a kick out of Seeing Things. Loved the show. The theme wasnâ€™t as good as the ones youâ€™ve picked, perhaps, but it went with the show and it was funny. â€”Rita
Today’s Special and The Polka Dot Door. â€”Stevie
Iâ€™m a little biased but Less Than Kind‘sÂ credit sequence and theme song “I Hate Winnipeg” (a.k.a. “One Great City”) by The Weakerthans is a pretty cool thing. â€”Marvin
How about Junior Forest Rangers and the original Littlest Hobo theme from the 60s?Â I mention these two because Iâ€™m an old fart and they were an important part of my childhood.
Also Mosquito Lakeâ€”although there was little love for the show from critics and it lasted just one season, Ian Thomas wrote the catchy tune. Still plays in my head from time to time. No link to that Iâ€™m afraid. Seems the only memories of that show are as â€œthe worst Canadian sitcom ever.â€ My little claim to fame. â€”Dan
Face Offs and frigid temperatures on The Amazing Race Canada
That was the most dramatic episode of the Race Iâ€™ve seen in years. Still not sure how I feel about the Face Off automatically giving a penalty, but apparently itâ€™s only 15 minutes in other versions of the show. And we didnâ€™t get to see it work properly anyway so I canâ€™t judge it yet. I bet the producers were freaking out behind the scenes.
Iâ€™m not sure but I thought the teams (in the U.S. version at least), depart for the next Leg 12 hours after they check-in at the mat. (After time penalties have been applied as needed). So I assume last weekâ€™s leg finished at 1:30 in the afternoon.
I probably would have done the same as Gino/Jesse in trying to flush out the Express Pass. Although, it was an easier Detour so Brent and Sean had a good chance of keeping it regardless. Although Nic and Sabrina may annoy them at the next airport.
How much dumb luck can Nic and Sabrina have? Three weeks ago they survived a penalty with about five minutes to spare, indirectly helping Brian and Cynthia eliminate Dana and Amanda. Two weeks ago they survived because Hamilton lost his passport. This week they got U-Turned but didnâ€™t have to do the task because it was dangerous to be on horses after dark, and two other teams took time penalties, so Nic and Sabrina are still safe and didnâ€™t have to do the Face Off with no penalty!
They didnâ€™t say how long Nic and Sabrina got penalized for the horse-ride did they? It probably won’t matter with two other teams also serving penalties, and not being able to do the task is not really Nic and Sabrinaâ€™s fault there either, so it shouldnâ€™t be as long as other penalties.
I kind of respect Kristin for at least finishing the horse thing. They are probably the next team to go though with her new leg problems plus they and Simi and Ope still have Face Off penalties to wait out. â€”Dan
